To maintain and amplify the energy that MOMENTUM magazine brought to our city.
To introduce diverse elements of art, music, movement, social activism and community into a crucible to activate positive connections and growth.
To demonstrate appropriate technologies and initiatives which we can use NOW to reduce our ecological footprint: Bicycles, transit, pedal-powered machines, solar, wind and geothermal power, green architecture, water conservation, urban density as opposed to suburban sprawl, co-operative living, composting, recycling, and so much more.
To share wisdom and knowledge.
To celebrate this marvellous city in which we live, and to explore its potential.
To stir people out of apathy and bring joy and purpose to everyday life.
To give and receive FUN, for FREE.
We already have everything we need. Let's revel in the abundance we have RIGHT NOW, make use of the resources WE ALREADY HAVE IN OUR HANDS and stop expecting change to happen from without.
Because compassion and creativity will set us free.
